  • Manuscrit de Voynich

    Anonyme

    Parution : 26 Juin 2012 - Entrée pnb : 9 Décembre 2015

    La reproduction complète du manuscrit de Voynich, formaté pour des lecteurs ebook à écran couleur haute définition.
    Le manuscrit de Voynich est un livre ancien écrit à l'aide d'un alphabet inconnu. Le mystère demeure entier quant à la nature exacte de ce manuscrit puisque les thèses les plus diverses s'affrontent.
    Le livre tire son nom d'un de ses anciens propriétaires, Wilfrid M. Voynich, qui l'acquit en 1912 auprès des Jésuites de Frascati, près de Rome. La plus ancienne mention connue de ce manuscrit date de 1639, dans une lettre d'Athanasius Kircher.
    En 1962, Hans Kraus fait une description du manuscrit sur son catalogue de vente. Depuis 1969, le manuscrit est conservé à la Bibliothèque Beinecke de l'université Yale. Selon une étude publiée en 2011 par l'équipe de Greg Hodgins de l'Université d'Arizona, le parchemin support du texte a été fabriqué entre 1404 et 1438.
    Description:
    Le livre est constitué de 234 pages de 15 cm de large et 23 cm de haut. Le manuscrit est en vélin (peau de veau mort-né, particulièrement fine, travaillée en parchemin de qualité supérieure) et 42 pages sont manquantes d'après la pagination. Il semble que lors de son acquisition par Voynich en 1912, le livre était déjà incomplet. Une plume d'oie a été utilisée pour le texte et le contour des figures. Plusieurs couleurs ont été apposées sur les figures d'une manière parfois grossière. On pense que ces ajouts de peinture ont été faits après la rédaction du texte.
    Histoire:
    Comme l'alphabet du manuscrit ne ressemble à aucun autre et que le texte est toujours indéchiffrable, les seuls signes reflétant son ancienneté et son origine sont les illustrations, spécialement les robes et les coiffures des personnages, ainsi que deux châteaux apparaissant dans les schémas. Ils sont caractéristiques du style européen et, se basant sur ce fait, les experts datent le livre sur une période comprise entre 1450 et 1520. Cette évaluation est confortée par des indices complémentaires. Une étude californienne récente (2011) a permis l'analyse au carbone 14 de 4 éléments distincts de l'oeuvre. Le résultat tend à prouver que l'ensemble du manuscrit a été rédigé à la même époque, dans un délai relativement court, entre 1408 et 1436.
    Hypothèses sur le contenu et le but du manuscrit:
    L'impression générale dégagée par le manuscrit suggère qu'il devait servir de pharmacopée ou de référence pour de la médecine médiévale. La présence d'étranges illustrations a alimenté les théories les plus folles au sujet des origines de l'ouvrage, son contenu et le but recherché par l'auteur. Il serait impossible de décrire ici l'ensemble des possibilités évoquées à ce sujet.

  • Anglais The Voynich Manuscript

    Anonyme

    Parution : 25 Juin 2012 - Entrée pnb : 9 Décembre 2015

    This ebook is the complete reproduction of the preserved Voynich Manuscript, formatted for high resolution color ebook reader displays. The Voynich manuscript, also known as "the world's most mysterious manuscript", is a work which dates to the early 15th century, possibly from northern Italy. It is named after the book dealer Wilfrid Voynich, who purchased it in 1912. Much of the manuscript resembles herbal manuscripts of the time period, seeming to present illustrations and information about plants and their possible uses for medical purposes. However, most of the plants do not match known species, and the manuscript's script and language remain unknown and unreadable. Possibly some form of encrypted ciphertext, the Voynich manuscript has been studied by many professional and amateur cryptographers, including American and British codebreakers from both World War I and World War II. As yet, it has defied all decipherment attempts, becoming a cause célèbre of historical cryptology. The mystery surrounding it has excited the popular imagination, making the manuscript a subject of both fanciful theories and novels. None of the many speculative solutions proposed over the last hundred years has yet been independently verified.Illustrations:
    The illustrations of the manuscript shed little light on the precise nature of its text but imply that the book consists of six "sections", with different styles and subject matter. Except for the last section, which contains only text, almost every page contains at least one illustration. Following are the sections and their conventional names:Herbal:
    Each page displays one plant (sometimes two) and a few paragraphs of text-a format typical of European herbals of the time. Some parts of these drawings are larger and cleaner copies of sketches seen in the "pharmaceutical" section. None of the plants depicted is unambiguously identifiable.Astronomical:
    Contains circular diagrams, some of them with suns, moons, and stars, suggestive of astronomy or astrology. One series of 12 diagrams depicts conventional symbols for the zodiacal constellations (two fish for Pisces, a bull for Taurus, a hunter with crossbow for Sagittarius, etc.). Each of these has 30 female figures arranged in two or more concentric bands. Most of the females are at least partly naked, and each holds what appears to be a labeled star or is shown with the star attached by what could be a tether or cord of some kind to either arm. The last two pages of this section (Aquarius and Capricornus, roughly January and February) were lost, while Aries and Taurus are split into four paired diagrams with 15 women and 15 stars each. Some of these diagrams are on fold-out pages.Biological:
    A dense continuous text interspersed with figures, mostly showing small naked women, some wearing crowns, bathing in pools or tubs connected by an elaborate network of pipes, some of them strongly reminiscent of body organs.Cosmological:
    More circular diagrams, but of an obscure nature. This section also has foldouts; one of them spans six pages and contains a map or diagram, with nine "islands" or "rosettes" connected by "causeways" and containing castles, as well as what may possibly be a volcano.Pharmaceutical:
    Many labeled drawings of isolated plant parts (roots, leaves, etc.); objects resembling apothecary jars, ranging in style from the mundane to the fantastical; and a few text paragraphs.Recipes:
    Many short paragraphs, each marked with a flower- or star-like "bullet".

    Stuart Dodgson Collingwood

    Parution : 27 Février 2014 - Entrée pnb : 9 Décembre 2015

    This carefully crafted ebook: "The Life and Letters of Lewis Carroll" is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents.
    This biography, subtitled The Original Scandalous Biography by Carroll's nephew, was written by Carroll's nephew and published only 11 months after his death in December 1898. It accidentally started the entire image of Lewis Carroll as a pedophile by deliberately suppressing all the evidence for his sometimes unconventional relationships with women, explaining that some of those women had been little girls... The Victorians had no concept of our modern idea of pedophilia. In fact, a man who loved pre-pubescent girls was considered especially saintly and innocent, and this was why Collingwood over-emphasized this aspect of his uncle's character so much.
    Stuart Dodgson Collingwood (1870-1937) was an English clergyman and headmaster. He wrote two books about his uncle, Lewis Carroll.

Orsino is in love with the bereaved Lady Olivia, whose brother has recently died and decides to use "Cesario" as an intermediary. Olivia, believing Viola to be a man, falls in love with this handsome and eloquent messenger. Viola, in turn, has fallen in love with the Duke, who also believes Viola is a man and who regards her as his confidant.
